1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Happy thanksgiving everyone!
    Sartorio + bontoni+ al Bazar tie (don't hate, love this tie)
    Cashmere vest woulda been better with navy suit, but it's cold enough for it

    For those of you having occasional trouble with impulse control over sartorial purchases, I've started a new help thread. It may die quickly but I hope it proves to be of some value.

    http://www.styleforum.net/t/442154/coxys-impulse-control-kop-recovery-thread#post_7534308

    The idea is, instead of making that impulse purchase, you take a photo of the item in question, and post it to the above thread. Add reasons why you should or shouldn't buy it. Others will then talk you out of it, and you can put the saved money towards your childrens' education or a Rubinacci bespoke three-piece.

    I'm baaack - slightly heftier from two weeks vacation and the Thanksgiving holiday, but ready to post.

    Blazer, trousers, shirt, shoes - BB
    Bow tie - Thomas Farthing, London
    PS - Robert Talbott
    Overcoat - Joesph Abboud
    Cap - Stetson, via JJ Hat Center, NYC
    Scarf - Burberry

    FYI - I believe that I had a Crat sighting, assuming that he was walking in Jermyn St. sometime last weekend, in the late afternoon. Unfortunately, we were walking in opposite directions, and before I realized who it was, we were far distant.

    Parade and feast are over, time to caffeine up this morning and find 30-40% off at Bloomingdales, Saks, Barneys -- and maybe even something on sale @ Bergdorf!

    Thanks and thanks for all the thumbs, guys!



    I like subdued looks, but this is almost a bit too subdued (apart from the 7 of course); the same tie in navy would have been awesome.

    a very close friend of mine just returned from Rome and gave me a bunch of ties and squares from Gutteridge. Not all hit the target, but this tie passed the test...

    AS, somehow the white contrast collar pulls everything together! I've been waiting for your post today!

    I prefer this version to last year (or the one before?), the addition of grey trousers keep it much more 'wearable'.

    Why?
    Just because one CAN, doesn't mean one SHOULD.

    You play in the big leagues. Very well put together on all your outfits [​IMG]

    Love the tie and the jacket. I would have preferred a White shirt to go with both, or that shirt-tie combo with a darker jacket. But I like it, anyways.

    Too bad we can't really see your outfit on the first picture. It looks like the jacket has the perfect fit for you.
    On your purchases, like that second suit! Looks very nice.

    I have to say that the guy in your inspiration picture looks pretty dangerous.

    Fantastic combo. A simple but always efective outfit. The jacket isn't a bit long on the sleeves?

    Thanks! No, the prob is the sleeves of shirt altered too short by store tailors. I wear these two cipa shirts cuffs unbuttoned and still bit shorter than I would like [​IMG]
